    Are you actually talking about a spur stop or a leg/weight stop? If a spur stop why would you be wearing spurs (or consider wearing spurs) if your legs get tight?

    If you're talking about a...

    If the buyer had already paid for the horse wouldn't that mean that the seller had already received the money for him, so was already protected against any loss? I could understand wanting the buyer...

    Why would the seller be named as the beneficiary if the horse was already paid for?

    I have a clunky old video tracker that whirs as it turns, and none of mine have been bothered by it. And they're spooky horses who are bothered by a piece of paper on the mounting block, or a sun...

    Because I think one can have a fluid transition (canter flowing into trot) without it being fluent. Fluent, in behavioral jargon anyway, means that the subject can perform the behavior easily. So...

    Fluent, I think, is a learning theory term that means "easily". IOW, the subject can produce the behavior easily and perform it well, so he's fluent in that behavior. Fluidity may be part of what...

    Possibly, except I find the jargon so poorly defined and so often counter-intuitive that I've had a lot of trouble learning what the words actually mean. Part of the problem is that there are so...

    Yes, finally, someone who gets that "forward" is not a good description of what trainers use it to mean.

    If the meaning of a word is only clear to those who already know that it doesn't mean...

    Two cameras, one at each end. I bought one camera new, but then paid less than half for the same camera used, since I didn't feel like I needed two dependable cameras.

    I have a video tracker but...

    I had the same question so practiced all 3 of them, and then decided that none seemed all that much easier than the others so decided to just stick with the program and do them in order (as soon as I...

    Just to cut to the chase, I agree that you should be worrying about your retirement instead of putting it into any dream, futile or not.

    However, that said, you may not need to sell your horse...

    This, as the alternative is to try to push through it, which is almost always a lot harder on both you and your horse. If you want to create a calm rider on a calm horse then take the time that it...

    I have a tracking device but it's a pain to set up, so I use 2 cameras instead. I set one up at each end and then I have video of the whole ride. I actually enjoy sitting down and editing the...

    That's exactly why I bought a saddle with blocks: to help me maintain a better position on a horse who is too big for me. I'm too old to be able to develop enough muscle to sustain a better...

    None of mine have ever had any problems going from bare to boots (or shoes) and vice versa, and I add or subtract hoof protection on a regular basis, including nailed on shoes and boots with...

    Thanks. I spaced out and washed my saddle with the pressure washer, which turned out to be an effortless way to make a $800 saddle into a $20 saddle in 5 minutes or less. It didn't cut all the way...

    Have glue-ons put on for the show and then take them back off again. There are also a lot of different products that can be bonded to the hoof to add temporary protection.

    I just sold a used pro with CAIR for about $450, and bought a newer one with the contourblocs (no CAIR) for about the same. I had a much older pro that I bought for $200 used, so it really depends...

    This. I think half the time people take things as insults that weren't even really meant that way, and are relieved when the recipient takes it the way it was meant (or should have been meant).

    That's exactly what I do. Clean my tack the night before (and try not to forget to load anything critical into the truck), get my horse up a couple hours before my test, groom him and put big braids...

    Tongue click, although he'll accept "yes", or a cough, sneeze or grunt. :-)
